Lepoeder. Stone marker and path to Ibañeta

This stone marker shows the forest descent to Roncesvalles (scenic, but also steep). Behind it, you can see the path that connects almost immediately with the easier paved road to Ibañeta chapel, and then to Roncesvalles. This is indicated in the adjacent wooden signpost as "alternativa suave".
When I reached this point last year there were maybe 7-8 other people there at the same time. I had done some research beforehand and knew that I wanted to take the road. After a long day I just did not want the extra stress on the knees of a steep descent. I was surprised (and pleased) that everyone else took the forest route. I guess it is a bit shorter, and to each their own, but I was happy to stroll the last few kilometres into Roncesvalles with nothing but my own thoughts.
 
The stone marker signals the steep way down to Roncesvalles, by the forest.
The path to Ibañeta/Roncesvalles can be seen behind the marker. After a few steps it follows the easier paved road. It is indicated in the adjacent wooden signpost as "Alternativa suave".
